maple salmon fillet with melted swiss and an almond crust


  • 4 salmon fillets 5 oz (150 g) each
  • 5 oz (150 g) Canadian Swiss sliced
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sliced almonds
  • Salt and ground pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 425 °F (210 °C).

Cut the salmon fillets in two horizontally without slicing all the way through. Insert the Swiss cheese slices into the opening, then close the fish, securing it with toothpicks if necessary.

In a bowl, mix the mustard and maple syrup. Season. Coat the salmon fillets with this mixture and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Remove the salmon fillets from the marinade and place them on a cookie sheet. Spread the almonds over the top of the fillets (the almonds will stick to the marinade) and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until done as desired. Serve immediately with vegetable rice.


Try it with Canadian Gouda, Cheddar, or Emmental, etc.
